Growing it

I wasn't expecting to harvest this soon but trichomes were mostly cloudy and some were orange. Sorry for the crappy macro shots. Majority of the pistils were no longer straight and white so I chopped her down. 210g trimmed weight weight not including another 20g of the larfy buds from the lower colas.

Nutrients

Followed Fox Farms schedule with little modifications. This strain responded very well. Only time I noticed some nutrient burn was when I up'd the tiger bloom. I've always used Fox farms trio and has been great, I don't see any negative effects using this product. Will I use it again for my next grow? Yes but I would also like to try other nutrients from other manufacturers.

Growing this strain with less than ideal conditions (high temp and RH) still turned out pretty well. With the stress of mainline training, this strain didn't show any growth stunts or any issues. I think I would have yielded more if I started with a better light during veg but it is what it is. Still happy with what I got. Hopefully I don''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''t run into mold issues drying the buds in low 60''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s% RH :anguished: I will have to update on taste and effects in a few weeks. I just made my selections based on the smell.
Update 9/24/17 - got about 2oz of dried bud. They're in jars now still curing for another week before I sample the fruits of my labor.000

How do you find mainlining as a technique? I only grow autos so have never had a chance to experiment.

@ForestGreen, due to my limited grow space I need to resort to some kind of training such as mainlining. Adds a few weeks in veg but it works for me. I can also get away with just LST or super cropping but I like the symmetry of mainlining.

@GreenCultivar, I hear you. My tent is only 0.8m high so with hps light too it gives little head room. I get by fine with LST though.
